CRX cuts off while pushing gas after a stop

08-18-2007, 10:05 PM

I have a 1987 Honda CRX, everything has been fine for a while, but it just recently started doing this: I will be driving just fine and maybe come to a stop light and as soon as I let off the brake, and start to push to gas, the car will die on me on me, but it will allow me to start back up and when I push on the gas it will stutter a little like it is straving for gas, and then it will take off without no problem, and this continues everytime I stop somewhere. I'm thinking it might be the ignition coil or the rotor.

It is a D16 Carburated engine, 4 cylinder.

Anyone have any idea why my car would do this, because I'm not that good of a mechanic to figure it out, the oil light comes on when i turn the key to accessory mode, but ti will go off after the engine is started.

Any idea? Would appreciate answers.

The oil light it normal, that means it's working. As for it dying out, try adjusting the idle level.
